First Oregon goes with crazy bright colors in strange designs and now the Beavers jump in with their new uniforms. I need to see these two teams play each other, and I need to see it NOW.

Edit-- For reference purposes: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/0706/campus.ugly.uniforms/content.10.html

In flipping through that top ten worst uniforms list, even as a Notre Dame hater, I can't understand how in the world they could put the green jerseys in there. No way, those are cool. Then again I also kinda like Wyoming, just cause it's so different.

How could Delaware be on that list but not Michigan. They almost have the exact same colors and design, just with a tad brighter shade of blue.

Because THAT's exactly what makes the Blue Hens unis so sickening. At least if you're gonna copy U-M, go all the way. The lighter blue makes them look HORRIBLE in comparison. And it was an old U-M graduate that became AD at Delaware way back when that decided to copy those unis.

Must not have graduated with a very high grade point.

Oh, and the Delaware numbering sucks @ss, too.

Yeah gotta agree, it works for Michigan because it's always been their way. Same reason Rhode Island looks stupid.

Wish Clemson would add back in some more of the blue/purple color they use.

Now, I'm with you with RI. That looks like it was designed for a ladies team.

Clemson purple is one of my favorite unis out there.

After googling a pic of the UM uni, I couldn't agree more.

Oh btw, I noticed CNNSI did a TOP ten jerseys in college football this past week as a followup, but I'm not even going to link to that cause it's quite possibly the worst top ten list ever made.

Yeah, there were a few head scratchers. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/0706/campus.bestuniforms/content.1.html

10: Georgia. Red and White. Eh.
9. USC. Would be higher on my list.
8. Georgia Southern. First time I've seen their unis and they look like a bad high school uni.
7. Ohio State. Not bad, but not in my top 10.
6. Wofford. Notre Dame but with a black jersey.
5. Notre Dame. Like Wofford but with a navy jersey.
4. Yale. First time seeing it. Nothing special.
3. Auburn. I like theirs.
2. Michigan. Nuff said.
1. Texas. I hate orange and burning it doesn't make it better.

If you are going with nicest, wouldn't UCLA's be right near the top?
As for worst, any of the Nike alternate uniforms qualify, whether it be when Miami looked like Baylor, Florida State wearing ugly black jerseys, or the entire Oregon collection.

Dude, UCLA? Holy cow those and USC's to me are on the WORST list. I need a black and white TV when they play each other.

Which Miami alternate? It sounds like you're referring to the "old school" one which wasn't an Nike idea per say, but what they used to wear and yes it was horrible. Of course theirs, Florida's and V-Tech's Nike one sleeve the other color look was indeed horrible.

FSU's wasn't a Nike deal either, but a tribute uniform to the Seminole people, and while personally I love their regular uni's I thought the black was pretty damn neat looking:

Certainly not in this class of ugly:

While I make fun of the Oregon uni's I sorta secretly love them. I just hope and pray they actually use the yellow helmets this year. So disappointed they didn't go all yellow just once.

Wow, those new Oregon State uniforms are awful. They might even be worse than Oregon's.

Wow, those were the nicest unis? I don't get half of them. If you're going with the classic red look (Georgia) and classic numbering (Georgia Southern), wouldn't Alabama be a better choice? Not to mention Georgia's away getup is red / gray, but it's a completely nondescript gray.

Gold and black? I'd opt for Wake Forest before Wofford, not the least of which is because the odds you'd actually see the jersey once in a few years is a lot higher. Army? Also a bit better.

Oddly, one of my favorite uniforms is Memphis's. Not everyone's cup of tea (it's a strong blue), but it does look pretty slick.
